Dr. John utilizes the following techniques:

Webster Technique (for Pregnant Women) http://icpa4kids.com/about/webster_technique.htm Dr. John Ferguson is certified to take care of pregnant women through the Webster technique - a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment which corrects subluxation in the sacrum (pelvis). The tense muscles and ligaments in the pelvis, caused by misalignment in the sacrum may lead to constraint in the uterus. When the uterus is torqued and constrained in this manner, it is more difficult for the baby to move into the best possible position for birth. As a result of this specific chiropractic care, the mother’s tense pelvic muscles and ligaments relax, enhancing the physiological environment needed for normal baby positioning.
